MCCC Admissions Overview

Line divider

Admission to Mercer County Community College is open to all people who can benefit from a post-secondary education. Mercer students represent a variety of ages and cultures, adding to the diversity and richness of a Mercer education.

Students may attend day, evening or weekend classes offered on the West Windsor Campus (WWC), the James Kerney Campus (JKC) in downtown Trenton, or through MercerOnline. Students may enroll full-time or part-time while completing a degree or certificate program or while taking individual courses.

Mercer welcomes applications from students in other New Jersey counties and from other states and countries but reserves the right to limit such enrollments in programs with limited staff and physical capacity.

Steps to Enroll

The college accepts applications throughout the year. Early application gives students the best chance for admission to a program of study and the best selection of courses.

  1. Each prospective student must complete an admissions application online.
  2. Each student must arrange for high school transcripts (or GED scores), immunization records (for full-time students) and college transcripts to be sent to the Student Records office. (Print the immunization form.)

      Student Records Office
      Mercer County Community College
      P.O. Box 17202
      Trenton, NJ 08690

    The results of standardized tests -- the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or ACT Assessment -- are not required for admission, but SAT scores may be used for placement and should be sent.

  3. Contact the Testing Center at 609-570-3295 to schedule your free placement test.

    Applicants who speak English as their second language may be asked to take an ESL placement test.

  4. When test scores are available, the student will meet with an advisor to discuss the student's background and interests, and review transcripts of earlier work. During this meeting the advisor will discuss the student's chosen program and arrange a schedule of classes for the first semester.
